This paper addresses adaptive detection of extended targets in Gaussian noise with unknown statistics. It is assumed that the radar can change the transmitted signal in azimuth. More precisely, it makes use of N N-dimensional signatures; the possible useful signal from each radar cell is a coherent pulse train while the disturbance is a Gaussian process independent from cell to cell, but with the same (unknown) covariance matrix regardless of the illuminated one. Based upon the above model we propose an adaptive detector designed according to a two-step procedure. Its performance assessment and the comparison with a previously-proposed detector show that the proposed one can be a viable means to cope with uncertain scenarios.

Abstract

This paper addresses adaptive detection of extended targets in Gaussian noise with unknown statistics. It is assumed that the radar can change the transmitted signal in azimuth. More precisely, it makes use of N N-dimensional signatures; the possible useful signal from each radar cell is a coherent pulse train while the disturbance is a Gaussian process independent from cell to cell, but with the same (unknown) covariance matrix regardless of the illuminated one. Based upon the above model we propose an adaptive detector designed according to a two-step procedure. Its performance assessment and the comparison with a previously-proposed detector show that the proposed one can be a viable means to cope with uncertain scenarios.
